Tennis Courts in Pasadena
If you like playing tennis or you’re thinking of starting to play tennis but don’t want to sign up to a class, you will be happy to hear that there are several public tennis courts in Pasadena. Pasadena High School, on 2925 E. Sierra Madre Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91107 offers as many as 10 tennis courts, open to the public on Sundays. Other courts are open every day and are also lit up for those who want to play a bit later in the evening. Tennis is a great sport and quite cost effective since you only need some tennis balls and tennis rackets, while the court is free!

Pasadena parks and playgrounds
Pasadena has a number of playgrounds and parks that are perfect for picnics or playtime for families! Some parks have picnic benches, large grass areas and fun playgrounds. Usually, we tend to only visit the park nearest our own home but why not explore other areas? You might find a new favorite park for those sunny Sundays.
